MARYLAND'S CORNSTALK MILITIA An Amuslnz Tradition of the Revolutionary War During the exciting times of the American revolution the'eastern shore, while many were true patriots and thoroughly believed In and upheld the cause of American liberty, was yet a hotbed for Tories, who as firmly de fended what they claimed to be the rights of the king. The region known aa the "Seaside." which extends along the western shore of Synepuxent bay. was particularly well supplied with the adherents of George 111. A great-grandfather of George W. Purnell, now a prominent member of the bar, was a staunch defender of American independence and a com missioned Officer in the militia, but ow ing to the depredations frequently eom mited along the seaside and about his own home, known as Fairfield farm, it became necessary for him to remain there to protect his property. The Tories about the country acted as pilots for the British soldiers, who frequently came in boats thtough tlie inlet at Chin coteague and up the Synepuxent bay, the prosperous farms along the shore offering an excellent field for their raids. For the most purt these farms were un protected, and the local S'orles would guide the soldiers to those houses where they would probably get the most booty. It is fold of Mr. Purnell that early one morning, while looking over his farm and standing on a hill which command ed a view of the bay. he saw several boatloads of redcoats making their way toward hi* own shore. He went to his house and summoned a dozen negro men about htm and armed them with long cornstalks. Mounting an old gray horse, he marched his battalion down behind she hill, always keeping out of sight of the approaching British. As soon as he reached the foot of the hill on the inir.nd side he called a halt and gave orders for his men. He stationed himself at the brow of the Ii til so that the head of his noble charger could be seen by the men on the bay. Then came the order for his battalion to march In review. In an unbroken line around and around the hlil they marched, with their cornstalk muskets glistening in the sun. His twelve men made a fine showing, and the effect on the raiders was magical. The distance magnified the number. They saw the army and prceipitntely retreated. The funic of the valorous old gentleman has been handed down to the present gen eration. —Baltimore Sun.

THE GOLD WATER BRIGADE Meeting of the County Probibi- tion Convention THE PLATFORM AS ADOPTED A Heated Debate Over the Plank on Worna Suffrage Two Socialistic Planks Inserted to dive It a Political Flavor—Election ot Delegates to th* Stat* Convention The Prohibitionists ot Los Angeles county assembled in force at Temper ance temple yesterday morning for their county convention. The hall was com fortably filled, a fair proportion of tlie gathering being ladies, most of whom were past middle life, while among the men gray hairs and bald heads predom inated. Almost all of the local leaders were in attendance, and before the reg ular business was proceeded with a sort of social session was held, when old ac quaintances were renewed, the new converts made to fee) at home, and good fellowship established. Altogether there were between 200 and 300 people in the hall, many of whom were from the country, and all of whom entered into the spirit of the meeting with en thusiasm, even if there was not the slightest show of success. The gathering was called to order at 10 oclock, when Senator J. E. McComas of Pomona was elected temporary chairman, and the proceedings were formally opened with prayer by Rev. Dr. Wilson, pastor of the First M. E. church, who asked the blessing of the Almighty on the deliberations of the convention. J. H. Blanchard was next elected tem porary secretary, with E. M. S. Warn as assistant, and then, in that open handed, liberal fashion characteristic of the Prohibitionists, all the members of that faith in the audience, whether elected delegates or not. were invited, on motion, to participate. Permanent officers were then elected, C. P. Borland being chosen chairman, with Dr. Ella Whipple Marsh and E. M. S .Warn as secretaries. At this juncture the convention, in stead of adjourning to give the dele gates a chance to refresh themselves, after the usual manner of political con ventions, relieved themselves with a song and took a fresh grip on the mo mentous business before them. ' The morning session passed off very pleasantly, the routine business of ap pointing committees, arranging for the expenses, etc., being Interspersed with songs, speech-making, etc., and alto gether the spirit of brotherly love and good will toward all men was very much In evidence. Immediately after the noon recess there was more singing, and then came the election of delegates to the state convention, the following being selected with but comparatively little friction: Jesse Smith, Pico Heights; J. D. Re qua, Dr. Steven Bowers, Rev. Clarence Wilson, T. M. Stewart.Rev. M. J. Hall, Mary E. Garbut, W. D. Gould, C. P. Dor land, P. P. Bresee, Mrs. W. D. Gould, H. C. Needham, Dr. Yocum, A. F. M.

Go ing, Tilman Hobson, Pasadena, The next Important business was the report of the committee on resolutions, and this proved to be the most exciting incident of the day. In fact, at times it looked as though there might be a split in the convention, and some real hard language was used--that Is, for a prohi bition convention, Language closely ap proximating personalities was freely in dulged in, and even the women were moved out of their customary calm and joined in the debate. Following Is the text of the majority report as originally adopted by the committee: Resolved, That we are loyal to the declarations of the national convention of the Prohibition party upon the ques tion of the prohibition of the legalized liquor traffic. Resolved, That we believe the liquor traffic to be the greatest foe to civiliza tion and to the peace and prosperity of Ita,e1 ta,e and country; that its annihilation is not only the greatest is sue before the American people, but is feTreaterthan all other issues combined m Record Breaker Shoe Business §11 3000 pairs of Tan Shoes for Men, Youths and Boys, on Sale Sjjjs fj§£Q n.+»*Mr*.-^ T A They have been on exhibition ever since yesterday fWffl 1 OITIOrrOW.

That the early settlement of this problem is so important that our efforts should not be weakened by com | plication with other issues, however im portant. Resolved, That while sympathizing with the many other reforms pressing for settlement, wo recognize the fact that our party was organized to deal with the one supreme issue which gave it name, and that other experimental issues can best be dealt with by a sober people freed from the domination of the liquor oligarchy; and we will focalizo our energies upon thia end. Resolved. That we demand a resto ration of the law protecting the sacred ness of the holy Sabbath day. unpro tected Sabbaths being in the interest of the saloon and inimical to the welfare of the whole people. Resolved. That we favor an amend ment fo article 11, section 2, of the state constitution extending the suffrage to w omen, in the Interest of the great issue which we are called upon to settle C. P. BORLAND, Chairman. JOHN A. B. WILSON, Secretary. This report was not satisfactory to State Chairman J. M. Class, and. ho promptly fired in the following minority report and moved that it be adopted in lieu of the majority report, with the exception of the first two sections: We declare in favor of government ownership of all works of public neces sity, administered in the interests of the people. We declare in favor of the initiative and referendum and proportional rep resentation. We declare In favor of the eleventh amendment to our state constitution giving women the ballot. We believe in gold, silver and paper for money, all on a parity, receivable for all debts, to be issued by the govern ment dlreiH to the people. Mr. Glass, in introducing his report, took occasion to "roast" In the most approved style the secretary of the na tional Prohibition committee, Mr. War dell, the treasurer of the Standard Oil company, whom he denounced as a monopolist who was trying to use the party for his masters. This had tho effect of bringing Rev. Mr. Wilson to his feet, who "roasted" Mr. Glass, and, the ice having been broken, a number of others joined in and took three-minute whacks at the proposition from their respective standpoints, each of the leaders apparently having quite a fol lowing. There was no telling when the talking would have stopped, but for the fact that many of the delegates had to catch the afternoon trains, and they linally got down to business, and a com promise platform was adopted. The first section of the majority report was adopted after having all that part after the word "party" eliminated. The sec ond section of the majority report was adopted In its entirety. The section of the majority report on Sunday observ ance was eliminated and the seotion of the state platform substituted, which reads: "All men should be protected by law in their right of one day's rest in seven." The section of the majority re port in regard to woman's suffrage was adopted. Then the two sections of the minority report on the referendum and money questions, which made up the platform. Immediately after the adoption of the platform the convention adjourned, after which .a meeting of the county executive committee was held. The celebrated Anheuser-Busch beer on draught.
